If AQHA Offered Ranch Trail At Regular Shows – Would You Show In It?

Ranch Riding is a newer class at AQHA shows, but it already has huge entries.  In 2015, there were 120 entries in the Senior Ranch Riding at the AQHA World Show! The class has definitely made a big impact and the numbers seem to still be growing.

The video below was taken at the Versaitility Ranch Horse World Championships. If you would like to only see the Ranch Trail portion, scroll to minute 3:10.  The original Ranch Trail video we posted was removed by the user, this is a great example as well.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I have worked on many of these elements myself and find the challenge of all the obstacles very rewarding.

    This class would be fantastic with a couple if stipulations. No fake tails (like ranch riding) and natural manes. This should be for the working horses, not the slow loper obstacle course competitors.

    The article is incorrect. Any regular show can add any individual VRH class, including ranch trail.

    I need a mounting block therefore the ground tie and would have me leaving the ring

    This class would show what the western horse is really all about. True versatility of the American Quarter Horse. None of this fake tail and 3 beat lope that looks like 4 beat lame lope. Hope AQHA looks forward and returns to the beautiful natural movement of the Quarter Horse.
